The Asia Week New York Association is pleased to announce that 37 international galleries and six auction houses —Bonhams, Christie’s, Doyle, Heritage Auctions, iGavel, and Sotheby’s will participate in the 2020 edition of Asia Week New York, the week-long celebration of Asian art and culture that spans the metropolitan region from March 12 through 19, 2020, with some participants remaining open until March 21st.
Says Asia Week New York chairwoman Katherine Martin: “After celebrating our 10-year milestone last year, we are excited to continue our success into the next decade.” According to Ms. Martin, a vital new goal of Asia Week New York is to increase and invigorate educational initiatives by tapping into the vast knowledge of our exhibitors and coordinating additional programing with some of New York City's finest cultural institutions. "It makes perfect sense," she adds, "that with the best-informed minds in Asian art convening in New York in March, we can expand our lecture program so that even more attendees can partake in a dynamic exchange of ideas within the various collecting sectors."
